Description

Cheesy Quinoa Casserole is made with only 5 main ingredients and takes 15 minutes to cook. It will leave you so satisfied with the combination of delicious healthy quinoa, warm melted cheese and roasted tomatoes!

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cups Milk
  • ¾ cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Divided
  • 3 cups Quinoa
  • ⅓ cups Tomato Sauce Or Pasta Sauce
  • Italian Seasoning, to taste
  • 2 whole Tomatoes, Diced, Divided
  • 1 bunch Shredded Basil Or Parsley

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease an 8×8 baking dish, set aside.

In a pan over medium high heat, heat the milk and ¼ cup cheese, stirring until melted, about 1-2 minutes. Add the quinoa, tomato/pasta sauce, Italian seasoning and half the diced tomatoes. Stir together until combined and creamy.

Add the quinoa mix to the baking dish and spread until even on the top. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and bake for 15 minutes. Broil for 1 minute afterwards until cheese is bubbly.

Remove from heat and allow to cook for 5 minutes. Top with shredded basil or parsley or other chopped herb. Enjoy!

I’ve never had quinoa, but recently purchased some. Is the quinoa cooked before you add it to the casserole, or do you add it uncooked? Thanks
